The drinks are on us!!
On Thusday 5th April, we are recording the first episode of our new podcast series - The OzLeisure Grapevine - a show all about
wine, beer and other drinks... what's hot and what's not.
Hosted by Greg Nicholson from Doc's Liquor, Balwyn North, this monthly podcast (released during the 2nd week of each month) will dicuss
wines and beers from smaller growers and producers, different wine styles, best buys, history, storage tips and much more. Each episode
will be approximately 10 mins long and available through iTunes and other distribution channels. We will also be placing a new feed
on the main OzLeisure.com.au website as soon as it is ready.
About Greg Nicholson I have grown up around hotels, living in them with my family from an early age. Both my grandparents worked in pubs and my father still works in the industry as a senior manager/group controller for Castalloes Hotels; a group of 8 Hotels in Victoria.
I moved away from the industry for a while to concentrate on teaching Martial Arts but returned to the industry in the late 1980's. After getting married, my wife and I moved to the Yarra Valley for 10 years where I became involved in the wine industry; managing a premium wine shop in the "York on Lilydale Resort" where I started my first wine club - a relatively new concept at the time.
After moving back to outer suburbs of Melbourne I started work with Vintage Cellars - a large chain group owned by Coles-Myer Group. I managed 2 of their stores for approximately 5 years before moving on to "Doc's Liquor", where I have been working for the past 5½ years.
Doc's are a chain of small, walk-in, hands-on premium wine shops that are gaining a huge following with our criteria of finding small, hard-to-get producers, and many wine and beer club activities. I am currently managing our newest shop in Balwyn North, VIC which opened 5 months ago.
Just a little taster from some of the activities on the site.
